Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, Dec. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Dominican Republic today announced that the internationally acclaimed artist Tiësto will perform at the fifth annual festival “The Paradise Music & Arts,” set to take place in Cap Cana, DR, on December 20 and 21. This multi-stage, multi-experiential event will feature an exciting and evolving lineup of nearly 50 artists, four interactive art experiences, and almost 40 chefs.

The two-day event—an integration of local culture, flavor and sound—celebrates the Dominican Republic and reinforces its position as a premier tourist attraction.   

“We’re proud to showcase the hospitality of our culture and welcome fans to The Paradise 2019, which will feature star-studded performances, immersive art experiences, and a culinary feast,” said Pablo Pou, CEO of PAV Events.

MUSIC

This year, attendees can expect a stacked lineup of A-list artists across three stages spanning various genres. Local artists will include Dominican DJ and producer Miguel Duarte, the local trio Mula, rising pop star Leton Pe, local gem Martin Domene, and up-and-comer DJ and producer Omar Andino.

Headliners on the “Live” stage include Puerto Rican reggaeton superstar Bad Bunny, known best for his collaboration with Cardi B and J Balvin on “I Like It.” He will be joined by Colombian singer and rapper Maluma, who crossed over into the mainstream pop realm working with Madonna and Shakira. Rounding out the headliners for the ‘Live stage’ are Latin trap phenomenon Anuel AA and West Coast rapper Tyga.

On the ‘Dance’ Stage, multiple platinum producer/DJ Marshmello will make his return for his second performance at The Paradise, alongside dance superstars Martin Garrix, Alesso, and world record-breaking DJ Steve Aoki.

Since it first began in 2014, The Paradise—formerly known as Electric Paradise—has featured performers like Cardi B, J Balvin, and Major Lazer. View this year’s full lineup here.

ART 

The festival will also include immersive art experiences, featuring four interactive art experiences, a shade display, a hammock installation, dome structures, and “Instagrammable” seating like sunbeds and large letters that entice visitors to photograph.

One of the art experiences includes SUBHAZE 4:3, an audiovisual installation and performance that explores the architecture of sound and light through frequency and spatial ratios. Participants will be invited to enter a holographic cube structure for an immersive installation, where SUBHAZE will perform live late evening.
